Presentation:Community Safety Centred Approach in the highways sector
Whatever region of the UK WJ staff happen to be working in - or maybe just travelling through - we consider ourselves part of that community. As such we have a responsibility to behave in a certain way that respects those communities.
Ensuring minimal impacts and good behaviour is a fundamental part of our ‘Community Safety Centred Approach’, particularly in relation to work related road safety. In fact, as a leading road safety contractor, designing, building and operating a fleet of over 200 specialist LGV road marking vehicles, we have a fundamental responsibility to consider the social and environmental impact on our communities.
WJ have established a training academy which is also a Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) approved centre and are committed to continually raising driving standards. WJ are Driving for Better Business (DfBB) Champions.
This presentation will provide a case study to highlight how through driver training, behavioural safety and innovative initiatives you can make a difference for your own drivers and all road users.
